“And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.

And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.

And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.

And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.”
Luke 19:1-4 KJV

Christ’s Bride: Waiting for the Lamb

servant washing

As Judy washed her daughter’s feet, she experienced the hope of new beginnings.

“And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”
Revelation 19:6-8 KJV

Mary: Waiting for Redemption

best for last

The bride chose a peach beverage for the reception, shipped in blue bottles and packed in silver crates. At the Gettysburg depot, Judy hurriedly loaded the wagon with brown crates wrapped in silver and blue ribbons, not discovering her mix-up until the wedding guests called for “more of that delicious apple punch!” Judy sent a telegram, describing her mistake to the other company’s manager. He replied: “No problem. Possible peach lemon bubbly as new product. Congratulations to the new couple.”

“When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.”
John 2:9, 10 KJV

Bathsheba: Waiting for Renewal

Harriet comforted mother and child as they awaited the jury’s verdict on the ship’s captain—and baby’s father—
accused of drowning the mother’s sailor husband.

“For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another

But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;”
Titus 3:3-6 KJV

Ruth: Waiting for Inheritance

sowing and reaping

Susanna allowed the pioneer family to glean fallen apples as they looked for a permanent home in Orchard Valley. When the children discovered blueberries nearby, Susanna shared her own wagon train story as she helped bake a blue apple pie.

“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,”
Ephesians 1:17-19 KJV
